Our interventional cardiologists at the St. Vincent’s Regional Heart & Vascular Center, Bridgeport, Connecticut, excel in minimally invasive cardiac diagnosis and non-surgical treatment techniques including:
Cutting edge techniques such as radial artery access are being used to minimize complications and provide greater patient comfort.
Advanced cardiac techniques such as the Impella device are being used to treat and support patients with the weakest hearts.
Cardiologists use catheterization to detect blockages in the blood vessels of the heart. A dye is injected into the arteries and from the images produced in the cath Lab, a diagnosis for treatment is decided.
If a blockage is detected, cardiologists call upon angioplasty to clear the blockage and restore blood flow. Emergency angioplasty is available from our PAMI (Primary Angioplasty for Myocardial Infarction) team 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week to treat heart attacks. We use the latest therapies, including medication-coated stents to keep arteries open with fewer complications.
Interventional Catheterization Labs
These non-surgical techniques to diagnose and treat heart problems are all performed in three state-of-the-art Interventional Catheterization Labs. The capacity of the labs allows three patients to be treated simultaneously, which is of vital importance for emergency procedures. Patients are immediately treated with catheterization services and possibly angioplasty and stenting to relieve blood vessel blockage. Catheterization and angioplasty services are available 24/7.
